    and along with the number of programs, if anyone would volunteer their approximate step scores, that would also be helpful.

    wow, good luck guys.
    If you want to do something, then you will find a way.
    If you want to do nothing, then you will find an excuse.

    no ck, so that is going to have some programs that will not offer up an interview until that is in...and depending on when the ck comes in, many programs may have given out all their invites.

    plus you should aim to have 15-20 interviews to be able to comfortably rank 10-15 programs to give yourself the best shot at matching (ther was a study dome by the nrmp a few years ago that showed a 90% of matching with 10 programs on the ROL and a 95% chance of matching with 15 programs on your match list. There will be programs that you visit and you say...ugh! i don't want to be here!...but if you only interview at say 10 places, then you will almost have to rank a place you don't like to give yourself the best chance to match.

    so if you want 20 interviews, ALL 20 places will have to give you an interview...100% invite rate...would be unusual...though of course if one is applying to say all community programs, then with a 99, probably a good shot at that...but all uni programs? well they are going to be seeing 99 in their applicant pool...in fact 99/99 will be seen...well who is going to get the invite?

    for example...i applied to 60 (back in 2007-8 it was a bit different climate), essentially uni programs (only places that had an endo fellowship- think there were 3 community based programs), got 20 interviews (1 community, rest uni), went to all 20 (exhausting!) and ranked 15 (5 place...well let's say i would rather have scrambled that be there)...matched my #3 (the 1 and 2 were frankly reaching for the stars...i was amazed i even got the interviews!)....but i have a classmate, who probably was at the same level (if not a tad higher) ranked 10 programs (and actually ranked the 10th as a just in case...) and ended up matching at the 10th place...so you never know.

    better to get more interviews than you can go to and be able to choose than forced to go to the only ones you get and have to rank all of them just to decrease the chance of having to scramble...and that scramble is getting harder and harder...
